Event description

Description

Sally Butler is Associate Professor in Art History in the School of Communication and Arts and Program Director of the Bachelor of Advanced Humanities (Honours). She has been a teacher of art history since 2004 at both ANU and UQ, and has also worked in education and curatorial sections of the Queensland Art Gallery. In 2014, Sally received a UQ Award for Teaching Excellence. Associate Professor Butler is also a freelance curator and arts writer whose principal areas of research are contemporary art, Indigenous arts, photography, and visual politics. Looking at Art is a first year course that aims to introduce students to concepts of visual communication and the discipline of art history, with particular emphasis on building skill sets in visual literacy and the structures of visual communication. Visitors to this class will see Associate Professor Butler’s management of a large size class and her informal style of lecturing with which she explains complex concepts clearly and concisely. Associate Professor Butler uses everyday analogies, humour, and a concentration on the process of seeing to relate first year students to complex concepts of art and aesthetics. The course is taught as 1 hour lectures and 1.5 hour tutorials.
